Hurting the people you intended to hurt? I'm not sure about that part... But you're creating a disruption and doing damage to -- somebody, right? That's really the only real goal anyway, right?
In Oakland, the protests halted truck traffic at least two gates. Truck drivers, union and port officials and Oakland politicians have said the protests will hurt the incomes of people who have little connection to Wall Street.
"This is joke. What are they protesting?" Christian Vega, 32, who sat in his truck carrying a load of recycled paper from Pittsburg said Monday morning. He said the delay was costing him $600.
"It only hurts me and the other drivers. We have jobs and families to support and feed. Most of them don't," Vega said.
Is this really supposed to make people more sympathetic to Occupy's concerns?
